Thanks to whoever reminded about the 10 euro deal being up. I logged in and found I am back to paying 29.99 so haggled them down to 10 a month for 12 months. Happy days.

My deal ends end of the month. I spoke to someone on the phone who said nothing comes up on the account and I need to call back after the deal ends i.e. I am paying the 29.51. I said I won't bother. Then chatted online with someone else. Told them I was going and they said fine. So 48 here I come.

Told me they would do 20 a month...no

Told me as I was a loyal customer they would do 15 a month...no, going to 48....

Told me as I was a valuable customer they would do 10 a month for next 12 months...sign me up again.....saved chat text.

Happy days.

Same as others, was just on chat with them, said the deal was up, then offered it for €20, said it was still too much, then said €15. I said about the 48 deal, said they'd check with the supervisor, then came back with the €10 deal for another 12 months, happy days.

Just hope they apply it promptly now, it took them a few bills last time to get it down to 10, but I've just got a few texts from them about new data allowances being applied to my account so looks good

Stuck in a rut

If i stayed with Three as i am it would be a one off cost of €900 for Samsung S21 Ultra (256 GB model) and then €45 a month for 2 years

Outright a S21 Ultra (512GB) model would be €1480 and when my contract is up in April try and find an AYCE Data sim only plan

Head is melted

So 45 euro x 24 months= 1080 + plus 900 outright cost brings it to 1980 over 2 years.

1480 upfront and if you can bargain Three down to a tenner a month would work out at 1720 over 2 years for a phone with double the memory. Seems a no brainer if you can afford the initial outlay.

Might try the same trick

Thinking buying the phone outright would be better and save me money in the long run esp if i can get a cheaper monthly cost

Amazon Germany selling the 512GB model for €1429. With Shipping costs €1460.81

You could just swap to 48's plan - it uses Three's network so it has the same signal

Ah, then you'd have to stick with Three. No 5G on 48 at the moment and a max of 100GB

Every time I look at these plans for a "free" phone, they work out way more expensive then doing it yourself so buy the phone and use one of the low cost monthly plans available.
With Gomo, 48 etc bringing the cost down, it makes it easy to decide, even if you have to borrow the funds to buy the phone, it will work out cheaper.
Nobody should be paying more than €15 a month for unlimited everything now.
If people move from the "expensive" plans around, the phone companies will have to bring the cost down.
